How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the current web space hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which furnishes a big number of different web hosting brands, yet providing strictly the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offerings on the whole web site hosting marketplace furnish literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based webspace hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other webspace hosting platform/site hosting CP choice. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

The web site hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names.

Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web space hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the present-day web hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel site hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps answered most website hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number One: A foolish domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the web server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming baffled? We unquestionably are!

Negative Side Number Two: The very same mail folder configuration

The email folder arrangement on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to fuck things up too irretrievably.

Shortcoming Number Three: An absolute absence of domain name manipulation user interfaces

Do we have to refer to the entire deficiency of a contemporary domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois info, shield the Whois information, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a vast predicament. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Weakness Number Four: Numerous login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

What about the need for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain name and tech support management software platform? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based webspace hosting firm. Now and then, based on the invoicing system (especially meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is making use of, the earnest users can wind up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name management user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Disadvantage Number 5: More than 120 web site hosting Control Panel areas to learn... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the web page hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel webspace hosting service providers:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
